Aside from a few toppled trees and some debris on the streets, the island weathered the storm pretty well.

Glynn County sheriff deputies reported no significant damage. Patrol cars made trips around the island picking up debris and working to keep the roads clear.   A service announcement sent out from the county cited multiple traffic signals out because of power outages.
